    Tea is brewing & I'm already enjoying sore throat Saturday! :eek:

    Have a fantastic weekend. :D


    A very good day for a "King of the Hill" marathon, besides it's supposed to rain (monsoon) today. ;)

    That’s awesome. I’ve never seen one quite like that before. A really good looking piece there.

    Beautiful Dave as always. Is the yellow Osage?

    Wonderful composition GT. Really crisp grain shot.

    Thank you Jack.

    I use the bail every time. I attach mine to a lanyard, and suspend it into my rear pocket.

    Yard work today calls for something that versatile and tough. Like me! Ha!

    Thanks, fellas, I think they must be fairly rare, I've never seen one before, either.

    Thanks, Jack. :)

    Cool background with coloration that complements the tortoiseshell! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks, Harvey. :)

    It's just too good to be true,
    Can't take my eyes off your canoe! :cool::thumbsup:;)

    Thanks for the size confirmation on your Buck, Tom, and for your compliment regarding Union Jack. :)

    That COULD be the genesis of the name, but it's not. ;) My wife and daughter visited the UK a few years ago, and at my request, they found a rosewood lambsfoot for me in York. When I first saw it in person, I was struck by the "horizontal" grain on one side and "diagonal" grain on the other, and that led me to the superimposed crosses of various types on the British flag aka Union Jack. So "union" is more related to family ties, and "jack" to jackknife, and "Union Jack" together to the grain on my knife, as well as its national origin.

    Love that GEC #170, Taylor! :cool::cool::thumbsup: (you do the model number math :p)

    Congrats, Jeff! :thumbsup::cool::cool: That's unusual and interesting.

    Thanks, JJ. :)

    Striking pair! :cool::thumbsup::cool: Not sure I like glitter gold on a coffin jack, though!?! :eek::D

    Outstanding pair of knives, Ron! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    :D:D Been there, done that, Jeff!

    Summer's here (and the time is right for dancing in the streets! :D)

    Have a safe and enjoyable trip, John! Good to see your faithful rosewood lambsfoot. :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Hope the sore throat doesn't stick around, Del; enjoy the marathon! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Dwight; I modified the "exposure" and "color" a bit after taking the pic. :)
    That's a superb French knife! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Sublime stag on your Hartshead lambsfoot Barlow, and I like that faithful old straw hat! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Couple of "free choice" knives for me this week in addition to the knives assigned by my rotation schedule.

    GT- Thanks for your comments especially about the hat. Bought it in Houston 40 years ago. Sin has left it sad scar.

    Most days a pair like this is more than enough for my EDC needs.
    The knives aren't really small. The leaf is really big.

    That's a very cool Boker, thanks for the info. I now have another knife on my 'watch for' list.

    I save my street dancing for winter time. Summer is too hot for that around here. :p
    I'm happy to see you're carrying the canoe Canoe. Let me know how the ink holds up. I've been using 'India ink" since that's what I've read recommended, but I'm experimenting with making my own 'lamp-black' (a good, indoor summertime project) :D

    Thank you, sir. I do believe that the Canoe is my favorite pattern. Such a nice, comfortable carry and I’m a sucker for spear blades. You won’t regret trying one out! If only I could find a GEC 16...I’d be a happy man.

    Thank you, and your Canoe is also a real beauty! That custom scrimshaw work is really clean and looks fantastic. Been thinking of trying out one of those RR Canoes myself, they look great.
